The University of Southampton owns a Sigma 38 Yacht, used to get more students, staff and the general public out on the water. The yacht, named Flying Formula, is category 2 coded for up to 10 people and is based at Town Quay Marina near the Red Jet terminal.

The boat is setup for both charter and bareboat charter and can also be accessed by staff on the evening yacht trips. The University is very keen to encourage the entire community to get onto the water and experience what Southampton is uniquely known for. For more information please get in contact by emailing:

For student and staff bareboat charter we require an ICC or day skipper qualification. An induction will be given to those wishing to take the boat out.
For external public bareboat charter we would require a yacht master qualification coupled with a boat induction.

We also offer evening sailing trips for University of Southampton staff and their families.
RYA training will be offered in due course.
